Equanimity Liu Bao is a traditional aged "dark" tea (hei cha) from Guangxi Province, China. It is considered to be the precursor of shu pu'er, since ripe pu'er originated from the process of Liu Bao. They both share many similarities in taste and experience. Our Equanimity Liubao was harvested in 2006 in China and aged in bamboo baskets in Malaysia. Like shu pu'er or any aged fermented tea, Liu Bao can be preserved for a long period of time if stored in proper environment (away from light, smell or humidity).

Tasting experience: Enthralling aromas of forest undergrowth and woody flavors, with a soft liquor offering spicy nuances of fennel and sweet maple water. 

Element : Earth. Mother of balance, sea of nourishment, instinctive energy we hold beneath us. This tea offers calm energy, gentle grounding meditative presence, to encourage balance and self-reflective time. Appeasing effect on the digestive system, and overall well-being. An invitation to reconnect with the wisdom of the Earth and your own inner wisdom.

Tea pot: 250 ml water · 95 °C · 2 tsp tea · 4 min infusion
